You awaken in a hazy state, lying on your back staring at the ceiling. The white fluorescent light feels like torture in your head. Short of the headache, you can't feel a whole lot, nor can you hear anything.

Look around a moment. The floor's uncomfortable, the lights even worse-- but first instinct is to figure out if we've still got all of our body parts.

Try and recall if this is something that's happened before.

You're a bit too close to the ceiling to be on the floor, you hope. You don't think you'd be able to stand comfortably in this room if this was the case at any rate. But that's the least of your concerns right now as you attempt to sit up but find your muscles not agreeing with the notion. You can very barely turn your neck to the right, and this feels like an olympic feat to you. No matter how hard you try though, you just cannot turn your neck back to center now let alone left, you're stuck like this for the time being, it would be uncomfortable if you could feel it. Using all your might you raise your right arm, or try to, you feel a light tug on your body after a monumental effort. Most likely your arm just fell off the side of a bed and is dangling in the air now. But this means you have a right arm, so that's a relief. The wall to your right is a plain white wall with a grid of white ceramic tiles on its lower half extending all the way to the floor. They are very clean.
You can't recall this having ever happened before, but then again you can't recall anything period. You don't even know your own name! Your mind is hazy and you are feeling tired. While the light is no longer in your eyes the headache has not faded. A thought crosses your mind to try and extend tentacles to the light switch. What a novel thought, how the life of a cephalopod must be a life of convenience you think to yourself.

Name yourself Cephalopod. Just because you can.

Cephalopod, Ceph for short, is a suitable name. You're feeling about as mobile as a fish out of water anyway.

Call out as best you can, see if you've still got a voice-- and if anyone else is in this room. This could be a bunk bed, after all.
